New Casio EX-FC150 and EX-FH25 digital cameras with back-lit CMOS sensors
Casio couldn't wait for CES 2010, and they have launched two new digital cameras today that serve as sequential updates to their predecessors! Meet the superzoom EX-FH25 and the speed-demon compact, the EX-FC150 (computer-translated links)
Meet the Casio EX-FC150
The EX-FC150 follows up on the popular EX-FC100 and offers a 10mp 1/2.3" backlit CMOS sensor, 5X lens (37-185mm) with sensor-shift stabilization, 3cm macro, and available in trendy-looking red, gold and black. See it at the computer-translated Casio website. It has among other things, high-speed night shooting and goes as fast as 1000fps (not a typo) at the video size of 224x64. Other features include a 2.7-inch LCD, SD/SDHC, LiIon battery (NP-40, 300 CIPA)
Meet the Casio EX-FH25
Meanwhile, the EX-FH25 is a superzoom with a 20X zoom ratio lens (26-520mm eq), 10mp 1/2.3" backlit CMOS sensor, high-speed mode, PSAM, RAW (DNG), AA batteries (490 CIPA with four AA NiMHs), 1cm super-macro, and such. It can burst at 40fps at nine-megapixels. Not bad! It records 30fps 720p HD video, along with the spec-shock-and-awe 1000fps video at 226x64 size. As you can expect it has an EVF and a 3-inch LCD display on the back of the camera.
See it at Casio Japan. It comes 14 months after the introduction of the EX-FH20, which came as the "deputy" of the big-daddy EX-F1 which was announced at CES 2008. As you may recall, the EX-F1 was the camera that Casio refused to let be sold online initially, but after a year or so, they "gave in" to internet sales.
We do not know if they have the new golf feature of the EX-FS10S.
